Here’s more information from

“Rev. Rebecca Anderson comes to storytelling via stand-up comedy, playwrighting, and preaching. She’s been on Snap Judgment (radio), The Broad Experience (podcast), and a Risk! live event. In Chicago, Rebecca has worked with companies and events like 2nd StoryThe MothThis Much is True, the Truth or Lie series, and Do Not Submit. In 2016 – 2017, she is an artist-in-residence with the Logan Square Ecumenical Alliance, teaching, leading, and facilitating storytelling with 4 congregations. With Rev Vince Amlin, Rebecca is co-pastor of Bethany UCC and a new congregation, Gilead Chicago, where they ‘tell true stories that save lives.”

In this active and interactive event, participants will strengthen their skills of crafting and telling stories.  We’ll think outside our usual stories — thinking beyond what “counts” as a story worth telling in a faith community. To that end, our storytelling session will help you:

  • Learn how to better mine experience for, and then craft, personal narratives on a theme
  • Improve your style: presence, tone, pacing, presentation.
  • Use structure intentionally and creatively to strengthen your story
